Thick Fish Soup "A La Vatersay" Recipe
Traditional Belgian fish stew (waterzooi), previously considered a food of the fishermen who could not afford the meals that are caught. This is a thick, rich fish soup with vegetables, egg yolks and cream. Wrote: "A la", because the site has a lot of "experts" of cooking, who will protest the authenticity of the recipe. I did with digressions, as I did not have all the necessary products available. But the taste didn't get any worse. It is very flavorful and delicious!

  1. We clean the fish and cut it into portions. I chose not to fillet the fish so it wouldn't fall apart.

  2. Fill the fish with water, put a Bouquet of garnishes, salt. Bring to a boil, remove the foam and cook over medium heat for about 15 minutes until the fish is ready. As soon as the flavor of seasonings goes, I recommend removing them, so as not to over-saturate the broth with them.
